After a costly defeat last time out, Chelsea hope to get their Premier League campaign back on track against an in-form Brighton.

15 points and six places may lie between the two sides in the Premier League table, but neither will take the other lightly. For Chelsea, this is a must-win match. The Blues are already 13 points off the top of the table and any slip-ups will probably crush their faint title hopes.

Brighton, meanwhile, aim to spring a surprise on Tuesday after a series of matches without defeat.

Current form — Brighton vs Chelsea

The Seagulls hope to boost points tally

Results have been on par for Brighton in their past games, as they have performed more or less according to expectations. They started taking out Everton in a 3-2 win, before a 1-1 draw followed against West Brom. Their most recent outing resulted in a 1-1 draw in a hard fought encounter with Crystal Palace.

The Blues continue to collect points

The mood around Chelsea is pretty low right now as a win has proven hard to come by in recent weeks. In their last 3 matches, they first beat Chesterfield 5-1 before winning away 1-0 at Tottenham. Their winning streak ended last time out in a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

How do the bookies view it?

Being both the bookmakers’ favorite at odds 182 and with stronger performances lately than Brighton have put on show, Chelsea seem the natural pick. Should this price be a tad low for your betting strategy, consider adding it to an accumulator.

Man of the Moment

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Neal Maupay. He is one of the Brighton players, who is showing decent form now. He managed to find the back of the net 3 times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Chelsea.

The visitors will be looking to in-form Romelu Lukaku to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently.
